Dubbin For a Good Cause
The National Alliance Foundation, a non-profit network committed to promoting peace and harmony while raising funds and awareness for cancer, announced today plans for the First Annual Reggae Summer Fest For Cancer Research reggae show. The inaugural concert will bring top-flight reggae and entertainment to RFK Stadium, home of Major League Soccer's D.C. United team.
Reggae Summer Fest For Cancer Research, as it is billed, hopes to attract West Indians, reggae music lovers and people who have an affinity for Caribbean culture to the DC
area on Sunday, September 7. Part proceeds from the event will benefit the Jamaica Cancer Society.
Headlining the show will be international reggae crooner Beres Hammond, best known for such hits as 'Putting Up Resistance,' What one dance can do' and countless other chart-toppers. Other acts include Ky-Mani Marley, I-Wayne, Turbulence, Chuck Fender, Prestige, Etana, and Fire Star. There will also be a local flavor as well, as area bands-including STORM, The I-Ternals, Strykers Posse, New Kingston Band, Passion Band, Image Band, and Yawd Lynk-will provide their own familiar sound to this event.
